Dr. Blum was very professional and personable and treated me with consideration and compassion. He listened to my complaints and gave me clear and concise information to help me to resolve them in the most effective way that worked the best for me. In the past, he has correctly diagnosed and treated me when a different physician the day before missed it and sent me home. He literally saved my life, and I would have had a much different outcome without his expert diagnosis and proactive treatment. I would highly recommend him to anyone as a highly qualified and competent physician who is there to help and guide you in your best overall health.

I was unable to set up a visit via Zoom during the pandemic but Dr. Blum found a work-around. My experience in dealing with the office was generally good and he was timely in his responses on their portal. It was very difficult to reach his office by telephone.

I'm sure most people don't enjoy getting a colonoscopy, but if you have to get one, this is the place. Everyone was pleasant and made me feel relaxed. I feel like I received the best treatment I could get.

I have been a patient of Dr. Eric Blum's for about 4 years now and I have found him to be a very experienced doctor who takes his time with his patients to make sure that they get the best medical treatment for their condition. He is an excellent listener as far as listening to you explain what your medical issues are without rushing to get the next patient. He is patient-friendly & the staff is friendly as well.
